  1. Hi all,
    new to all this, im looking into joining the TA in York and wondering peoples opinions of the best unit to join.
    Many Thanks for any help
     
  2. The QOY are in York, and have an interesting role - something tells me, however, that recce might not be your thing! Try the TA Recruitment forum, and take a look at this for a quick overview - http://www.army.mod.uk/documents/general/QOY_Factsheet.pdf.

    The best thing you can do is phone, find out when they parade, and turn up to see what you think for yourself. If you join them, you may well get to drive a tiny tank and wear a natty red hat. Whats not to like?
     
  3. 4 YORKS or, if you feel like something a bit harder (but not far away) 4 PARA and RMR.

    if he's going to look at 4 para then why not THEM as well?
     
  5. Had forgotten about 23.

    For someone starting out though it is a big commitment and there was a stage when they were having to train as recruits with 4 PARA too. Amazingly many failed selection but had not attempted P Coy so had to do it to then join 4 PARA, get some experience then try again.
